Just clap your hands



Beck sez, That’s where it’s at … Two turntables and a microphone …

These are exciting times.

I am mixing together a baker’s dozen of idealistic principles to create a more nutritious blend of who I am and who I wish to be. You have heard how that phrase “baker’s dozen” came in vogue, haven’t you? From what I hear, hundreds of years ago there were stiff penalties drawn up (perhaps the penalties themselves were for the baker to be drawn up and quartered, or baker’s quartered) if the customer were cheated on the amount of bread they purchased, and therefore the careful and worried baker began to add an additional loaf to an ordered dozen, just to make sure it all worked out. Or something along those lines. Once again we see the influence of “measuring accurately what we do” as well as “underpromising and overdelivering” and “how Philip mangles word origins.”

Now, of course I’m not going to come right out and blurt the actual, specific principles that I’m developing. However, one of them starts with “Communi” and ends with “cation,” and as part of that I want to add to my web site every day (or as close to every day as I can). Perhaps a story, or a blog entry, or a collection of pictures; as usual, this is mainly for my benefit as a way to sharpen my communication claws — if you happen to find something entertaining or otherwise of value, then that’s a bonus for you: a lightning bug caught in your empty milk jug. Blink Blink, says that lightning bug. Think Think, says my brain with a shrug.

These are exciting times. And if you see me tomorrow, you’ll discover one noticeable difference.

Guster sez, Fa fa fa fa fa fa fa fa, Never be the same again…
